We need your help to pack and distribute food bags for our clients on. The tasks will include packing bags, organizing bags, some lifting, sorting through donated food items, and distributing bags to clients. We may be asking some of you all to drive items to other places if need be. All volunteers must be licensed drivers.

CAC is following Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Georgia Department of Public Health guidelines to keep volunteers, staff and clients safe at CAC facilities.

- Routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace.
- Providing cleaning products so that commonly used surfaces can be wiped down by employees before each use.
- Limiting face-to-face contact by closing CAC facilities to the general public and distributing food at the doors.
- Asking people who have traveled to affected areas of the world not to volunteer at this time.
- Asking sick people not to volunteer.
- Sending sick people home.
- Protecting seniors and people at risk by not allowing them to volunteer at this time.

Also, all volunteers must be between 16 years old and 60 years old. All registered volunteers please report to the food pantry located at 8607 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, Georgia 30350, at least five minutes before your scheduled shift.

Finally, please only sign up for shifts that you are absolutely sure you can make. We need the work done and if you do not show then it can compromise our ability to serve those in need. If you have any questions, please contact Nolan Feintuch, CAC Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteers@ourcac.org.

Hygiene Kits for the Homeless

SafeHouse Outreach SafeHouse Outreach (SHO) is a nonprofit organization that aims to transition people from homelessness to a point of stability and independent living. SHO provides practical, emotional, and physical assistance and support for the in-need and at-risk, and helps integrate them back into society through time-tested programs.

At home project: Volunteers can still serve those experiencing homelessness by making hygiene kits for the guests of SHO and then dropping them off at SHO. This is an OPEN PROJECT so if you are not a Pebble Tossers member click here to participate in this project.

Requirement:
Send a photo of you and the hygiene kits you make and send to lisa@pebbletossers.org If you are doing this to fulfill any service hours requirement you MUST send the photo before we approve your hours.

Other Needs: In addition to the hygiene kits SafeHouse Outreach needs toilet paper. The other night 270 people came for dinner at SafeHouse, which is almost 2Xs the regular number! More people served = more need for toilet paper.

COVID UPDATE FROM OPEN HAND ATLANTA
From a safety perspective, we will continue to follow the guidelines put forth by the CDC for proper hygiene and sanitary practices as well as the other common-sense measures communicated previously, and have implemented these additional precautions:

We are now requesting that anyone who has traveled outside of the U.S. in the last 21 days OR who may have come into contact with someone who has or may have contracted COVID-19 to please refrain from volunteering on our campus for at least 14 days.

We have significantly increased the number of hours janitorial staff are on site at Open Hand to continually disinfect surfaces like tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. We have asked our staff to suspend participation in large conference gatherings for the next 30 days.

We have placed additional hand sanitation stations throughout the campus and REQUIRE that all volunteers, visitors to our campus and staff use them upon entry.

Treats and Toys for Shelter Animals

Celebrate Global Youth Service Day with Pebble Tossers on April 18, 2020. Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) is the largest youth service and civic action event in the world and the only one that celebrates and builds the capacity of all youth to help our communities and democracy thrive by working together for the common good.

To celebrate GYSD, Pebble Tossers has planned a virtual volunteer day for volunteers to work at their own homes. Volunteers can host a kibble drive, make dog toys, or dog treats to be delivered to local animal shelters and rescue groups. Details on where and how to donate your items is coming soon. Volunteers are able to pick up fabric from Pebble Tossers to make the toys. Below is a link to how-to-sheets for each of these projects.

If you are not a member of Pebble Tossers, we invite you to participate in this Open Project by clicking here to register.

Local shelters and rescue groups are overwhelmed with an influx of new animals. Pet owners who have been negatively affected by the COVID-10 crisis are having to surrender their pets. Even though shelters are asking pet owners to keep their pets for an additional four weeks before needing to surrender, the numbers are increasing. These organizations need many things to help these pets. Virtual volunteer opportunities to make toys and treats are ways that volunteers can provide assistance from their own homes.

Requirement: Upon completion of your project email a photo of you with your treats, toys or kibble to lisa@pebbletossers.org
